I am amazed and somewhat perplexed that a 1957 commercial for RCA Victor records would totally ignore the biggest-selling artist on its label. The inclusion of the singers mentioned in the commercial must not have been influenced by sheer record sales. It seems RCA was targeting that ad toward an adult demographic.

It's a nice commercial, But...
....It's a shame it's in such poor condition. The print has faded, It's worn, And the sound is poor. I honestly hope this commercial can be restored, because at this rate it will be gone in 10 years.

Stylized 1957 commerical for RCA VICTOR records. You never get to hear any samples. It Rests on the performer's personality. Soundtrack a little garbled. Color faded.

This ad reminds me of some of the records that I used to find when I would search through my family's music collections.
And what's with the bitterness on these boards lately? Can't anyone just lighten up and enjoy themselves?

Great Line up from the "House of Nipper"
Well, let's see you try to buy a Perry Como CD of this same 1957 album for less than $3.98 from any audio store. Can't complain about the prices back then (1957) with the price of homes batting around $12,000 new, wages of .85 cents/hour to begin with, salaries of $7K/yr was "making the dough" for middle class America, and we won't even begin with the price for a gallon of gasoline (any grade) of a incredible price of .21/gallon. All the artists that were listed on these album covers were hard working artists who knew how to express their talents in a very appreciable way-not being obnoxious like the junk (rap crap, hate music, et.al.) that we have now.

Woo! Perry Como for 3.98!
A commercial with no sound for RCA victor's summer line up of records.. You could choose from Lena Horne, Harry Belafonte, or yes, Perry Como himself. Didn't know there was a song called "We get letters..." thought that was just a David Letterman/Paul Schaefer creation...
